Lawrence Kamin’s history of representing clients in financial services matters predates passage of the federal securities laws during the New Deal. The past decades have seen an explosion of litigation, led by governmental and regulatory agencies and private investors. Our litigation attorneys have acted as counsel in numerous and varied securities matters, including complex litigation and class actions involving parallel regulatory investigations or enforcement proceedings brought by the SEC, FINRA, and state regulatory agencies. We have maintained an outstanding record of success on behalf of a number of the nation’s leading investment advisors and broker-dealers in prominent and complex customer and industry litigation and arbitrations.
Financial service industry clients look to Lawrence Kamin not only to protect their rights and interests in litigation, but also to design effective strategies to avoid liability and prevent future lawsuits. In so doing, we strive to not only understand the facts of a given case, but to learn the details of our client’s operations and procedures. We examine a claimant’s factual and legal assertions and theories of recovery, and conduct targeted discovery to candidly analyze risk of liability and loss and realistically advise clients on strategies and alternative resolutions. Our disciplined approach to customer disputes has resulted in remarkable success for our clients, including numerous pre-hearing dismissals, settlements and respondents’ verdicts.
Whether defending a financial securities client against class action claims or obtaining and enforcing judgments for money damages, our focus is to design and implement a strategy that will effectively and economically accomplish client goals, and allow our clients to focus on their financial services business rather than the business of litigation.
